Peay Estate Sonoma Coast La Bruma Estate Syrah 2015
Tasting Notes: 2015 La Bruma has a very intense graphite and smoke nose with blackberry and black currant fruit lying at the core like a bottomless well. It is quite savory with fennel, rosemary and garlic notes making visions of lamb chops dance in your head. Notably, there is little of the violet, floral quality usually found in this cuveé. The mouth is dark and savory with some bitter chocolate and plum notes overlying a granite and inorganic mineral quality. The wine is not heavy in the least as the alcohol is moderate and the finish bright and energetic due to refreshing acidity. This wine is very compelling right now but will be fantastic with a few more years under its belt. The 2005 La Bruma is just hitting its stride 13 years from vintage and Peay Vineyards would give this wine up to double that life, if any lasts that long.
Vinous 93/00: Peay’s 2015 Syrah Estate La Bruma presents a distinctly earthy, floral profile to play off a core of red/purplish berry fruit. Gracious and lifted in feel, this mid-weight Syrah has quite a bit to offer. Overall, though, the 2015 is fairly restrained for the year.
Food Pairing: Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah.
